I'll Have the Double-Double

Kudos to Heather O'Reilly for scoring her 10th goal of the year last night against China, which along with her 10 assists, make her just the sixth player in U.S. history to score double-figures in goals and assists in a calendar year. The others? Well, you've probably heard of Mia Hamm, who did it five times. Carin Gabarra, the MVP of the 1991 WWC did it once, as did Shannon MacMillan and Tiffeny Milbrett. Abby Wambach has done it twice, including this year, when she scored 13 goals with 10 assists before breaking her leg.
